Program Proposals

Past Program Proposal Lists:

 






 



 

COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE

Computer Science

NEW PROGRAM

Undergraduate Certificate of Academic Achievement in Information Assurance and Security

Justification:

Undergraduate Certificate of Academic Achievement in Information Assurance and Security:
(3) CSC 152, Cryptography (new course proposal in progress)
(3) CSC 153, Computer Forensics Principles and Practice (new course proposal in progress)
(3) CSC 154, Computer System Attacks and Countermeasures
Justification. The Center for Information Assurance and Security (CIAS) was recently approved as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. The proposed certificate program would satisfy one of 10 criteria to renew this standing in five years’ time. The certificate program would also satisfy one of the key aspects of the center’s mission, which is to advance knowledge of information assurance and security practices through education, training and awareness, applied research, outreach, and collaboration with other institutions.

NON-SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE

M.S. in Software Engineering

Justification:

Restructuring to merge required core courses CSC 230, 232, 233, 235, 238 and electives CSC 231, 234, 236 into one group from which students are required to take seven out of eight courses. The required core course in Research Methodology is now in its own lettered section. Other degree requirements remain the same.

Justification: This change will not reduce the rigor or change the units of the degree program but will provide flexibility in department course scheduling.
